Third

  • Slide the bottom plate closed and latched.
  • Be sure that there is no hay blocking the bottom plate from sliding shut and closed.
  • Be sure the feeder is properly secure and shut so that the horse does not slide the bottom pate out and hurt themselves or damage the feeder.

  • Pull the hay up through the grate openings to show your horse how to pull the hay out and eat correctly from the feeder.

For the first week of use;

  • place free choice hay next to  and on top of the feeder to the to acclimate your horse to the feeder.
  • Be sure to keep pulling the hay up thru the top grate openings to insure your horse is getting the idea of eating from the feeder by his/herself.

*This may seem like a no brainier but some horse’s will get anxious or impatient and frustrated and then refuse to eat from the feeder, or they will push down on the grate and not manage to get the idea to pull the hay up from the grate openings. If your horse should have any of these issues or continue to be frustrated with the feeder, continue to keep free choice hay on top of the feeder with the inner hay pulled up thru the grate openings. Supervise them closely until they are calm or remove  the feeder until you can spend the time and supervise them.

Please do not place the Savvy Feeder in an area with more than 2 horses per feeder, as they may fight over the hay & feeder. This may lead to possible injury.

Be sure hay in the feeder is not constricted, and is free of debris, mold, & thistle. This may avoid frustration, pawing the feeder, refusing to forage, and possible injury.

Check screws & acorn nuts on a monthly basis to ensure that they remain tight. If loose, tighten grate screws with a screwdriver. Tighten feeder box acorn nuts with a 3/8″ wrench and opposing screw with a screwdriver.
